Sixth quickest in Friday night's practice in Bahrain, Daniel Ricciardo feels that is "more or less" where Red Bull had expected to finish.
The Aussie had a solid opening day at the Sakhir circuit, fifth fastest in the afternoon's session and sixth quickest under the lights.
Finishing the night with a best time of 1:35.449, Ricciardo was satisfied with his night's work, revealing that the cooler conditions had helped.
He revealed: "I had an alright session, I think we're looking pretty good. We're more or less where we expect to be.
"We're a little bit more competitive in cooler conditions so the night session should be good.
"The tyre degradation is quite high here, it will probably be a two-stop race, but we'll see.
"It’s going to be windy tomorrow so we might have some sand on the track."
